So full-time work is kind of an ass.

On Friday my boss got me to organise all the crap that was spilling out of his bookcase and onto the floor around his desk. The first half of the day was awesome because I'm naturally curious about other people's things and how often do you get a chance to look through your boss' personal things? By the second half of the day the novelty had worn off because I was past the snooping part and onto the putting things away and sorting through old magazine subscriptions. Snore.

Anyway the most bizarre things I found in what is meant to be his work things:
* A deflated inner tube
* A bag full of tea towels
* A book on time travel
* A book called "Petaphysics" which is something about coming up with theories to explain the exceptions to the Laws of the Universe
* Two bags of pebbles (which I guess aren't completely bizarre for an architect to have near his desk...sort of)
* A whole lot of personal birthday cards where his friends call him embarrassing nicknames

Also at one stage my boss appeared to be smelling his keyboard, either that or he just wanted to rest his nose on the "g" key. I guess he forgot I was there.

Suddenly my monitor settings seem to have gone haywire. Past icons I've made are looking awful and oversaturated and just nasty. Now I am completely paranoid that perhaps my icons only look good with certain monitor settings and that everyone else sees them looking crazy oversaturated and burnt looking. Melodramatic? Perhaps. ;)

Anyway could you tell me what Brightness, contrast etc setting your monitor is set to? I'm not sure if it changes with different brands, mine is a Samsung. But seriously something is wrong, very wrong! :)

And in other news I start my first full-time job on Thursday, next year will be the first year I haven't been at school since I was 2 years old!

And then I remembered how awesome Kate Walsh is...

Kate Walsh makes everything shinyCollapse )

I might remove some later, because seriously there are so many!

Hope you had fun looking at the glory of Kate.

And just in case you missed it, here are the cast of Grey's fav moment. Every second of Kate is pure joy especially her karate dancing!

I haven't posted in a while because my life has been completely un-newsworthy. ;)

I spent a three weeks worrying about not getting a callback for a job I applied for at an Architectural firm, then got a call on Monday from the Director telling me he had been in Mexico for the last month. I have an interview on Thursday, tests are involved. *gulp* I am half oh my gosh looking forward to next year b/c I have reached new heights of being over uni and half freaked out. Uni is such a buffer against the real world, I'm not sure if the real world and I will get along.

And moving onto a completely unrelated subject because any prolonged thoughts of the future freak me out...
